Sheng Siong Boss Mother Kidnapped

Wow big news, people actually have the guts to kidnap people in Singapore, furthermore the two kidnappers are Singaporeans. I wonder what made them resort to something so drastic, kidnapping carries the death penalty.
Kidnapping Act
"Abduction, wrongful restraint or wrongful confinement for ransom
3.  Whoever, with intent to hold any person for ransom, abducts or wrongfully restrains or wrongfully confines that person shall be guilty of an offence and shall be punished on conviction with death or imprisonment for life and shall, if he is not sentenced to death, also be liable to caning."
In other countries maybe they can get away with it but Singapore is such a small place, where can they hide? And the ransom amount was $2 million, how are they going to get away with such a big sum of cash? I think those 2 guys did it without thinking, very foolish.
